they're safe as well. we know that al-qaeda has camps with the drug cartel on the other side of the mexican border. we know people have been trained to act like they're hispanic when they're radical islamists. we know this is happening and it's insane not to protect yourself and make sure people come in, as most people do, they want the freedoms we have. >> cenk: so now apparently al-qaeda is acting like hispanic. i'm not sure i know what that means, guys, but working hard, loving your family. >> what is he talking about? he's talking about so many things and trying to connect things that don't connect. if you're talking about acting line hispanic, i guess you could say, middle eastern people and hispanic people sometimes have similar features or complexions but i'm not sure what he's suggesting that we do. >> cenk: i think he's slightly off balanced, mentally. >> absolutely. >> cenk: he is actually a sitting u.s. congress person. he thinks there are big al-qaeda camps on the other side of the border like they're getting ready to cross the border, and training how to act hisp
or they were the agent of a foreign power. in the case of al-qaeda and the taliban if you could show that an individual was a member of al-qaeda or taliban then there may be some legal grounds to detain them and try them as an enemy combatant rather than in federal court. but this is masked in legal clothing. it's not actually a legal argument, and we shouldn't confuse these two things. the argument they're making is we should presume from the beginning that any incident involving islamic militancy is some how tied into al-qaeda. as i said, i've done research on this region and this particular conflict for 15 years. while the militants in chechnya have adopted al-qaeda ideology the connection is very slim and they have very different objectives that are very local very parochial and have a lot of to do with russia and very little to do with the united states. >> john: i agree and you're characterizing that as a political approach is profoundly diplomatic. scholar and attorney, christopher swift, thank you for coming tonight. >> thank you. >> john: thank you. one good thing may come o
of the implement itself, a pressure cooker is more commonly used in those countries than in places like iraq. al-qaeda refers to it in their recruiting website to inspire others. it's simple. a pressure cooker, the purpose of a device like a pressure cooker, the reason why you would need a device like this because a slow-burning--something that does not detonate, it doesn't--it literally explodes. it only explodes when it's in a contained vessel, and the gas has overwhelmed the vessel and then turns that vessel into shrapnel. the pressure cooker is a poor man's way of putting the explosive in, locking the top on and now you have a vessel for the explosive. >> john: i'm sure you're confused as the rest of us was about the amount of confusion today. is it possible that law enforcement deliberately put out false information about an arrest to flush out suspects? >> it certainly could be done. one of the big units involved in a case like this, and every major case is the behavioral analysis down in quantico. my brother is from that unit, and they're directly involved in directing the investigators of how
this narrative that it is islamic, jihadist, al-qaeda-type organization. without having any facts. >> stephanie: you know what? it might be. that's the problem. we don't know yet. >> caller: right. for every one time they mention a domestic terrorist organization, they mentioned al-qaeda ten times. and you know, i think that's part of what rush limbaugh does. he gets out in front and he tries to shape the behavior of these major news networks by his ranting and raving and i think that's something we need to be careful of and really as a society, we need to understand. >> stephanie: yeah, that's what i was saying yesterday. he makes this like -- he takes one guy that wrote one thing and says oh, the mainstream media is dying to think this or this. no, "washington post" is one of the only places that rushed to a judgment without having the information. and as it turns out, they were wrong. i'm sorry, "new york post." >> very different. >> very, very different. >> sorry! >> stephanie: all right. one of the doctors at massachusetts general. >> variety of sharp objects we found in their bodies, prob
al-qaeda has camps on the other side of the mexican border. and they are being trained to come in and act like mexicans when they are radical islamists. >> remember this is the same guy% who said that -- warned against terror babies where pregnant morts were being put into the united states have baby's send them out to the middle east and then have them come back and bomb our cities. the appeal of loui gohmert is to try to link all of this stuff together but it is really the britters and ziophobes in the party. and he certainly doesn't have a lot of influence. >> michael: i also want to about another strange person mark sanford. the republicans are saying we're not going to spend another dime on this race. he is on his own. his colleague saying i am not going to make a comment. >> he is amazing, you try to sneak back into your house where your wife doesn't want you to be. and the whole story is amazing. at every turn he tries to make a comeback and then blows off his own foot in the process. this is an amazing opening for the democrats and stephen colbert's s
